Elements of a Premises Liability Claim
After suffering from an injury and subsequent damages on someone else’s property, your lawyer will work to prove that the property owner was negligent. If you want to take legal action, your claim will depend on them proving the elements of negligence were present. Otherwise, you won’t have a case.
In order to prove that your injuries were the direct result of the property owner’s negligence, you’ll need to prove these four elements:
- There was a condition or hazard on the property that could have caused visitors on the property harm.
- The property owner or another representative on the property should have known about the condition or hazard and the harm that they could have caused.
- The property owner or representative didn’t take reasonable measures to remove the hazard and protect potential or current visitors on the property.
